Monitoring of CoolSculpting Procedure

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq provides training for the procedure.  They will provide certification for the practice.  It is best to find a board certified dermatologist with experience in CoolSculpting for the best cosmetic results.

CoolSculpting regulations

The regulations for medical devices vary from state to state. Find a medical office that is owned and operated with a physician on site. The CoolSculpting website can help you find the top providers of Coolsculpting in your area. That can soften be an indication that a practice has a lot of experience and expertise with the procedure

Coolsculpting Regulations

The Coolsculpt technology is a non-invasive procedure.  A person running the machine doesn't need to be a doctor or nurse but a technician who is supervised.  The technician needs to be licensed by the Coolsculpt University for a certificate.  The technician needs to be supervised by the doctor for quality of care.
